Work by Brooke Westfall
Curated by Amy Cancelmo
Artist talk: Thursday, July 18th 5:45 pm – 8:00 pm
Spare Change Artist Space | 465 California Street, Suite 838
Join us for an intimate artist's talk with Root Division Studio Artist Brooke Westfall about her work currently on view at Spare Change. Westfall creates works on paper that utilize storybook illustrations and coloring book structures to examine the psychological and sociocultural effects of family dynamics. Influenced largely by eastern miniature painting and illuminated manuscripts, many of the drawings contain intricately dense patterns and inviting details only to mask the often disturbing and violent nature of the underlying narrative.
Root Division is thrilled to partner with Rhodes & Fletcher LLC to curate Spare Change with the work of our Studio Artists and Affiliates.
Gallery Hours: Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm
